The story and art is up to the usual standard for the Thunderbolts, so if you have enjoyed past adventures, you should enjoy this one. If you are new to the title, this is still a good enough place to start, as the back story is explained as we go along.

Issue #152 and 153 contain one story-arc. To deal with a serious threat which reuires a lot, as Luke cage puts it, raw-power, he recruits Hyperion. Then , the team goes to Japan to fight some over-sized monsters. And then the unexpected happens. Though it's a short story-arc, it's highly entertaining and bit of humour makes it still better.
Issue #154 is a single story with focus on the Man-thing. It even tells about the origin of Man-thing. This, also, is a well-written story.
Issue #155 involves Cage and Strange going to Nepal to recruit Satana who doesn't seem to be interested in joining the Thunderbolts. Story is ok but the character of Satana is very interesting and will only make the whole team more interesting.
Issue #156 and 157 actually involves two stories. In one story, Cage takes the team to Germany to handle one magical threat whereas in the other story Songbird, Fixer and Mach V (ex-thunderbolts and current Team leaders) "interviewing" candidates for a beta-team of Thunderbolts. This Beta-team is later termed by Moonstone, very humorously (and maybe reasonably) as "Underbolts".
One of the only fault I found with this book is the art. The pencillers are not that good, especially Kev-walker. He is bad with faces, especially with Karla Sofen/Moonstone. She looked ugly or was rather drawn ugly-ly. In Issue no 155, Dr Stephen Strange is drawn with a rather large and awkward moustache which looked, well..strange! (Sorry, bad pun).
Apart from the minor complaint I mentioned above,It's one of the few good ongoing-series from marvels. And this time, the Thunderbolts are led by a hero (Like Cage). The Team dynamics is good. Well-written dialogues, fast-paced story, lots of drama and action! Excellent characterization. Hats-off to Jeff Parker. Blessed is he, to be able to come up with such stories and characters. I had bought ALL the new Thunderbolts title ("Cage", "Shadowland", "Violent Rejections", "Fear Itself" and "The Great Escape"). No disappointments, so far. Hell, I'm even enjoying this series!
